The little restaurant is very nice and simple, familiar warm atmosphere, you can be asked to share the table with others, if you sit on big tables, which i find very nice. The environment is casual but stays quiet, you can have some privacy and talk, is not too noisy or too crowded. At lunch is half-empty because people is... More

Dropped in for a very nice meal. Cosy ambience, friendly service, great food - not "cheap and cheerful" but pretty reasonable and great value. I enjoyed a bife de chorizo w red peppers and onion. Very tasty and reasonably sized (unlike the usual giant Argentinian bbq). My wife enjoyed trout and vegetables and she finished it enthusiastically. Best thing was... More

This place was recommended by our B&B host...and we can't thank her enough! This was the first restaurant we tried on our first day at El Chalten and we enjoyed every moment. We had the cordero and bife de lomo. The cordero delicious and paired great with beer. The bife de lomo was grilled beautifully and was so tender and... More

El Muro is strategically located on the way back into town after one of the main hikes. After 8h of walking we made the mistake of stopping there for a beer and empanada. Service is unfriendly at best and sloooooooooow. The later is the last thing you want when all you are ordering is a bottled beer. Empanadas were good... More

This little restaurant, located at the end of the main street was recommended by a local and it didn't disappoint. We got there early and had no problem getting the table by the window. It was fun to watch all the tired hikers come off the Fitz Roy trail. My husband enjoyed the cordero and I had the salmon ravioli.... More

Anything from the grill!! And the lamb Lasanga. Went twice!! At the end of the main strip. Perfect for walkers coming down from Mt Fitzroy. Opens around 6 for drinks, grill/food starts at 7. Wait staff was lovely. A little pricey but so is most things in El Chalten - worth the cost. Artesenal beers on tap very tasty. Rubia... More

If you want to have best argentinian stake, just go to El Muro. We found this is a best restaurant serving meet in El Calafate. Best combination is El Muro signature stake with wine from the boutique winery PRIVADO lable (Jorge Rubio)
